What Is Wills and Trusts Law About?
What is a will? A will is a legal document that specifies how you want to inherit, your property, how it is distributed and who will care for any minor children.
If you die without a will (inestate), your wishes may not be carried out

- List who you want to get what so your wishes are carried out the way you want them to be.
- Make sure your will complies with the law.
- Nominate an executor of will
- Show you how to reduce taxes and other costs your loved ones may face after your death.
- Make sure your estate can be quickly settled without change, avoiding probate court.

Why You Need A Last Will and Testament
Wills and Estates bring out astonishing greed in people and they will do anything to get as much as they can regardless of who they hurt.
You can prevent this by having a lawyer prepare a legal will which leaves no room for debate about who gets what and who gets nothing.
A wills and trusts lawyer will explain what you need to know about making a valid, legal will that will survive probate so your estate is distributed to your heirs exactly as you intended.
THE FIRST STEP: In order to make a will, you need to compile a list of all your assets and debts to provide to the lawyer who is creating your will.
You also need to designate who gets what in your will. Be precise to avoid confusion and conflict.
THE SECOND STEP: You also need to ensure that your will can be located after you die. Your lawyer can probably store it for you, but be sure someone in your family knows that you have a will and where to find it.
